which we all use so often, really mean? Can a person be a Muslim simply because he is the son or grandson of a Muslim?

thanks;

But what does acceptance of Islam mean? Does it mean that whoever makes a verbal profession-‘I am a Muslim’ or ‘I have accepted Islam’-becomes a true Muslim?

A muslim is the person that obeys ALLAH SUBHANA WAT'ALA AND HIS PROPHETS ALAYHIM SALLAM.WE MUST OBEY ALLAH SUBHANA WAT'ALA COMMAND,FOLLOW THE SUNNAH OF THE PROPHETS.IF WE SHOULD DISOBEY WHAT ALLAH SUBHANA WAT'ALA AND HIS MESSENGER SAL ALLAHU ALAIHI WA SALLAM THEN OUR BEING A MUSLIM IS HANGING IN THE BALANCE.

Muslim and Islam has the same root which is salam one of the attribute of our Rab,and it means peace but to answer this question I must lay the foundation that what we do in Islam must be done with the Itteebah of the Rasulalah sws,meaning we must do things the way He did or said to do it,so this means that we cant answer Islamic question from our own "hawa" desire or intellect,we must answer them the way the Rasul sws has.Islamically implied a muslim is one who submits,so the question is submit to what? The answer is Islam,so a muslim is one that states shahadah tayn "there is no Allah but Allah and Muhammad is His prophet,"this brings this one into the folds of Islam,so the next question is what is Islam?Again remember that we cant answer this on our own,according to Umar ibn khattab ,the angel ask the rasul sws this question in a hadeeth,the rasul sws said that islam is the five pillars,so a muslim is one that submits to the five pillars.

Muslim is derived from the word Islam, that is peace. So Muslim is a person who achieved peace through peace and submission to Almighty Allah. Muslim by default should be obedient to Allah. To achieve it one should submit himself to Allah, meaning he should follow Allah's law.

this is my humble opinion. May Allah guide us all.

Jazaka Lllah kheiyr, Thank you for your answer as i understood yr reply as:-

No. A Muslim does not become truly a Muslim simply because he is born a Muslim. A Muslim is not a Muslim because he belongs to any particular race; he is a Muslim because he follows Islam. If he renounces Islam, he ceases to be a Muslim.

:::::::

And if I will round figure yr answer if i may state that:=

Islam, therefore, consists, firstly, of knowledge and, secondly, of putting that knowledge into practice.

Yes ?
